Friday night we took our kids to the mall to see the real Santa, he wasn't there! Apparently his wife passed away earlier this year and he was not handling it very well. I was so sad. He is Santa, so good with the kids, so clean and sweet. We have had all our pictures for the last 6 years taken with him. The kids definately noticed and were bummed but handled it very well. Peyton really liked him and wanted to feel his beard. It was hard to get a pic of her facing the camera, we had to really whoop and holler because she wanted to keep looking at Santa. Oh, and by the way, her first word is Santa and she says it so cute and clear. She says Mama and Dada and Nana and Dah (Dog), but Santa is her first real and clear word. It is just so cute. She seems to say it about Chritmas trees, but whatever.
